Ok I burned the living daylights out of my fingers a few weeks ago while cooking. (something I LOVE to do but only get the time to occasionally do- cooking not burning myself) I didnt have a Kitchen towel around to prevent any more burns. So I put on my "thinking cap" and came up with this cheap, easy, quick way to prevent myself from being burned by the hot pot lid. Just take a strip of Aluminum Foil, pull it through the lid handle and pinch them at the top to make a straight upward handle...and voila! If you have some ideas of your own please do share them in my comments section below!
